Volunteer Coaches to co-lead Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls workshops. Coaches help participants become more confident about managing falls by believing that they can increase their strength, find ways to reduce falls, and protect themselves if they do fall. Coaches are paired with another volunteer Coach. Coaches empower the lives of others to become confident as well as provide self-management tools to enhance the lives of others. The next Coach training session is September 9 & 10 from 9am to noon at Thrive Alliance located in the United Way Center. Please register for this free training by Friday, September 6. For more information contact, Shelia Woods at 372-6918 Ext. 2763.

luncheon site meal program
There are 15 meal sites in our five counties. The meals are served in group settings once a day, five days a week. At each site people meet, socialize and make new friends. The program coordinates with local senior and community centers to furnish a broad range of educational, recreational and supportive services. These services promote the physical, economic, mental, social, and physiological well-being of the participants. A nutrition education program is held at least once a month at each luncheon site.
Financial donations are essential to support the program and are always greatly appreciated. Participants are encouraged to donate whatever they can afford. Reservations are appreciated, but not necessary. Call a lunch site nearest you and a meal will be ready for you!
The menus are published in each community newspaper and are available on our site (see bullet point above for "Luncheon Site Locations." Links to current menus and nutritional analyses are also available on this page.
Homebound meals - eligibility
Several funding sources are available that provide financial subsidies for eligible seniors and persons with disabilities. Each has its own eligibility requirements. The minimum requirements for subsidized funding are that you must be 60 years of age or older and homebound (unable to leave your home without assistance). Please call our Options Counselors toll free at 1-866-644-6407 with your questions and for eligibility determination.
At times there may be a waiting list to qualify for some funding sources. It is very important to place your name on a wait list so that you will qualify for assistance as soon as it becomes available. Our Options Counselors are trained to locate and connect you with other community programs that may help you in the interim.
